At least it's savoury, my friend tried the lamington potato chips the other day. Really weird.
Those are disgusting. Threw the bag out.

Cheeseburger was alright but tasted like pickle. Which is fine but I prefer the Delisio burger flavoured ones. Wouldn't rush out and buy them again but they were decent.

Tried this yet?

I don't blame you for chucking them, don't think I'd ever be curious enough to try them.

I have not tried the milk, I do like ginger beer, is this ginger milk any good?

Not to bad. I liked it but not enough to buy it over the other Lewis road milk. Did taste like gingernuts though.

I liked the Whittaker's ginger beer chocolate, wife didn't. Might buy that one again idk.

I got some dried dulse a few years ago at a Nature’s Grocery near me. That’s a store 1 part grocery, 1?part vitamin store, 1 part new age shop.

It wasn’t bad, but I was the only one who really enjoyed it at all.
It's certainly one of those things that you either like, or don't. For some it's an acquired taste. As a kid it was just a very easily available sort of thing but, like so many other things in life, it's been latched onto by a specific group and the price has gone way up.

In Canada, pretty much every year, Lays has a contest for new regional flavours. I think they do in the US also. We've had some really good ones like Buttered Chicken and some real losers, like Mac & Cheese (seriously, just get some sort of cheese flavoured chips). The Montreal Smoked Meat flavour was bloody horrid. Didn't taste like any sort of meat at all let alone the Montreal Smoked variety, which is something I like to get whenever possible.

I think that's a worldwide things. Some duds over the years.

Lamb and Mint
Salmon
Mac and Cheese

These flavours have been good.


I think they're doing mountain dew Doritos atm.

I still haven't been able to find that chocolate. Was hoping to get some to taunt a friend of mine who is also looking for it. I'll keep an eye out for the milk, I don't often have drinks like that though due to diabetes, to much of a sugar hit, same with the chocolate. Only an occasional treat nowadays.

Edit: Just went and bought a quick (cheese burger) pie and found the chocolate there so had a try of it. Not too bad.

I've seen various joke flavours for Lays on reddit. Shame the Montreal Smoked meat didn't taste good, all too often what sounds like it would be an awesome flavour fails in execution.

Anything bacon)Gam/smoked on chips usually suck.

We used to have bacon flavour. They weren't great.

Flavours Cary by country. I think cheese and onion is really popular in the UK, in NZ it's Green Onion and there's only a couple of companies doing cheese and Onion.

Sour cream variants popular in Russia.

That makes sense to me. When I visited, sour cream and dill were all over the cuisine.
They're popular here as well but the YouTubers that show Russian supermarkets, yeah shelf after shelf of them.
And yeah sour creams a big part of their cuisine as they put it on their pancakes.

Made blinis but put jam, yoghurt, fruit in them not sour cream.


Sour cream and chives delicious.

Russian boat crew at port here walk past, supermarket bags full of biscuits, chocolate, chips. They buy the same brands we do lol.

Here, too. Mom’s favorite flavor, in fact, and often supplemented by french onion dip.
Yeah same here. Green onion with onion dip is your classic kiwi dip.

Sour cream and chives also great dip chip.

They're your basic flavours along with ready salted, chicken and salt and vinegar.

I’m the only one in my family who likes salt & vinegar chips. Ditto lime.
Limes hard to find good ones. I think we have a lime and black pepper flavour.

Salt and Vinegar I like but I don't love.

When I was a kid you could get fries with vinegar in them. It's an English thing I guess.

Haven't seen that as an option for a long time though.

Its not like you wake up and think "I'm going to go and find a nice English restaurant" and go there.
